The FIDM Museum is proud to present the 20th Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design exhibition. Celebrating the art and industry of costume designers, this exhibition presents more than 100 costumes from twenty films released in 2011, including all five Academy Award nominees for Best Costume. Selected costumes from Anonymous, The Artist, Hugo, Jane Eyre, W.E, Immortals, Super 8, Warhorse and other films provide an up-close view of the costumer's art.
The exhibition will also showcase classic film costumes from the FIDM Museum collection and the Department of Recreation and Parks, City of Los Angeles, Historic Hollywood Collection. Some of these same costumes were featured during the first Art of Motion Picture Costume Design exhibition in 1993. Worn by Fred Astaire, Ingrid Bergman, Jean Harlow, Marlene Dietrich and other Hollywood legends, these historic objects celebrate the history and glamour of Hollywood costuming.
